[VARIOUS Englifh Translations of 
*he Bible were extant at the clofe of the 
£xteenth century : In fome of them the 
Old I'eftament was made from the Sep- 
tuagint, (that is, from a Greek translation 
of the Hebrew executed by order of 
Ptolemy; Philadelphia, 284 years before 
the Christian JEra) itf others, immediately 
from the Hebrew Text, except a few 
paffages which were rendered from the 
Septuagint — and in others, both the Old 
and New Teftament were made from the 
Latin of the.Vulgate. Thefe translations 
in feveral isfiances differed from each 
other, which induced King James I. to 
felect fifty four men, eminent for their pi- 
ety and learning, and particularly fkilled 
in the original languages of theScriptures, 
to make an entire new tranflation of the 
Bibe — the Jid Teftament from the ori 
ginal Hebrew Text, and the new from the 
original Greek. Fortyfeven of thefe em 
inent men commenced the important bu- 
finefs in the beginning of the year 1607. 
They arranged themfelves into feparare 
claires, «nd to expedite the work, each 
clafs took a feparate portion of the Bible. 
After three years clofe application, the 
feyeral claftes had completed the parts 
aliigned th*m The whole number then 
alfembled in a body, and critically com- 
pared ihe copies of each clals with the 
original, and with other tranflations ; and 
no Sentence wash;, tlljj accepted till, in the 
general ©pinion, it expreffed the fenfe of 
the infpired original : Nearly another 
year, it is Said, was fpent in this bnfinefs ; 
And in the year 161 1, this tranflationwas 
by authority firSf, published. As it was 
executed by the order, and at the expenfe 
ot the crown, the copyright became the 
property of the King, whofe it has ever 
Since continued.

firmament from the wafers which were

ft And on the feveath day God ended 
his work which he had made : and he 
refted on the feventh day from all his 
work which he had made. 

3 And God blciTed the feventh day, 
and fancYified it : hecaufe that in it he 
had refied from all his work which God

7 And the Lord God formed man of

his noflrils the breath of life ; and mart 
became a living foul. 

8 f[ And the Lord God planted a gar- 
den eaftward in Eden j and there he put 
the man whom he had formed. 

9 And out of the ground made the 
Lord God to grow every tree that is 
pleafant to the fight and good for food ; 
the tree of life alio in the mid ft of the 
garden, and the tree of knowledge of 
good and evil. 

10 ^[ And a river went out of Eden to 
water the garden ; and from thence it 
was parted, i\nd became into four heads. 

11 The name of trie firft't* Pifon ; that 
is it which compaileth the whole land of 
Havilah, where there is gold 3 

12 And the gold of that land is good :

if Gihon : the fame is it that compaireth 
the whole land of Ethiopia. 

14 And the name of the third river h 
Hiddekel : that is it which gceth toward 
the eaft of Alfyria. And the foarth river 
is Euphrates. 

15 And the Loud God took the man, 
and put him into the garden of Eden to 
drefs it, and to keep it. 

16 f And the Lord God commanded 
the man, faying, Of every tree of the 
garden thou mayeft freely eat : 

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of 
good and evil, thou (halt not eat of it : 
for in the day that thou eateft: thereof 
thou (halt furely die. 

13 And the Lord God faid, It is not 

good that the man fhould be alone j I 
will make him an help meet for him. 

19 ^ And out of the ground the Lord 
God formed every beaft of the field, and 
every fowl of the air ; and brought them 
unto Adam to fee what he would call 
them : and whatfoever Adam ca.led ev- 
ery living creature, that ivas the name: 

20 And Adam gave names to all cattle^ 
and to the fowl of the air, and to every 
beaft of the field ; but for Adam there 
was not found an help meet for him. 

21 f And the Lord God caufed a 
deep fleep to fall upon Adam, and he 
flept : and he took one of his ribs, and 
clofed up the fiefh inftead thereof; 

22 And the rib, which the Lord God 
had taken from man, made he a woman, 
and broupht her unto the man. 

38 And Adam faid, This is now bone 
of my bones, and fie ft of my flefh : (he 
(hall be called Woman, becaufe (he was 
taken out of man. 

24 Therefore fhall a man leave his fa- 
ther and his mother, and fhall cleave unto 
his wife : and they (hall be onerlefh. 

25 And they were both naked, the man 
and his wife, and were not afhamed.

23 Therefore the Lord God fent him

2 H 'i hefe arc the generationsof Jacob. 
Jofeph, bem% feventeen years old, was 
reeding the flock with hi* brethren ; and 
the lad was with the fons of3ilhah, and 
with the fons of Zilpah, his fathers 
wives : and Jofeph Drought uato his 
father their evil report. 

3 Now Ifrael loved Jofeph more than 
all his children, becaufe he was the fon 
of his old age : and he made him a coat 
of many colours. 

4 And when his brethren faw that their 
father loved him more than all his breth 
ren, they hated him, and could not fpeak 
peaceably unto him- 

5 5 And Jofeph dreamed a dream, and 
he told it his brethren : and they hated 
him yet the more. 

6 And he faid unto them, Hear I pray 
you, this dream which I have dreamed ; 

7 For, behold, we were binding (heaves

His brethren confpire his death. Chap.

8 And his brethren faid unto him, Shalt 
thou indeed reign over us ? or, (haltthou 
indeed have dominion over us ? And they 
hated him yet the more for his dreams, 
and for his words. 

9 And he dreamed yet another dream, 
and told it his brethren, and faid, Be- 
hold % I have dreamed a dream more ■ 
and, behold, the fun and the moon and 
*he e 'even (tars made obeifance to me. 

10 And he told it to his father, and 
to his brethren : and his father rebuked 
him, and faid unto him, What is this 
dream that thou haft- dreamed ? Shall I 
and thy mother and thy brethren indeed 
come to bow down ourfelves to thee, to 
the earth ? 

11 And his brethren envied him ; but 
his father obferved the faying. 

^ 12 And his Brethren went to feed their 
father's flock: in Shechem. 

13 And Ifrae! faid unto Jofeph, Do not 
thy brethren fe^d tot flock in Shechem ? 
Come, and I a- ill fend thee unto them. 
And he faid unto him, Here am 1. 

14 And hefaid to him, Go,- 1 pray thee, 
fee whether it be well with thy brethren. 
and well with the flocks ; and bring me

15 And a certain man found him) and, 
"behold he <was wandering in the field: 
and the man afked him, faying,- What 
feekeltthou ? 

16 And he faid, I feek my brethren : 
tell me, I pray thee, where they; feed 
their flocks. 

IT And the man faid, They are depart-

go ro Dothan. And Jofeph went after 
his brethren and found them in De-:han. 

18' I And when they faw him afar off. 
even before he came near unto them, 
they confpired againft him to flay him. 

19 And they faid one to another, Be-

24 And they took, him, and cafl him 
into a pit : and the pit lOas empty, tbeic 
zvas no water in it. 

25 And they iat down to eat bre?.d :

11 \ And the Lord fpake unto Mofes, 

12 I have heard the murmurings of 
the children of lfrael : f'peak unto them, 
faying, At even ye fhal! eat flefh, and in 
the morning ye mail be Filed with bread*; 
and ye (hall know that I am the Lord 
your God. 

13 And it came to pafs, that at even 
the quails came up, and covered the 
camp : and in the morning the dew lay- 
round about the hoft. 

14 5 And when the dew that lay was 
gone up, behold, upon the face of the 
wildernefs there lay a fmall round thing, 
as fmall as the hoar frofl on the ground. 

15 And when the children of lfrael faw 
//, they faid one to another, It is manna : 
for they will not what it 'was. AnO Mo- 
les faid unto them, This is the bread which 
the Lord hath given you to eat. 

16 1 his is the thing which the Lord 
hath commanded, Gather of it every man 
according to his eating, an omer for eve- 
ry man, according to the number of your 
uerfons ; take ye every man for them 
which are in his tents. 

17 And the children of lfrael did fo P 
and gathered, fome more, fomelefs. 

18 And when they did mete it with an 
omer, he that gathered much had nothing 
over, and he that gathered little had no 
lack ; they gathered every man according 
to his eating. 

19 And Mofes faid, Let no man leave 
ofit till the morning. 

20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not 
unto Mofes; but fbmeof them left of it 
until the morning, and it bred worms, 
and flank: and Mofes was wroth with, 

'21 And they gathered it every morning, 
man according to his eating : and 
when the fun waxed hot it melted. 

And it came to pafs, that on the 

lixth day they gathered twice as much 

bread, two omersfor one man : and all 

iters of the congregation cam« and 

told Mofes. 

And he faid unto them, This is that 
which the Lord hath faid, tomorrow 
is the reft of the holy fabbath unto the 
Lord : bake that which ye will bake to- 
day, and feethe that ye will feet he ; and 
that which remaineth over lay up for you 
to be kept until the morning. 
-4 And they laid it up till the morn- 

The/abb ith appointed for ftft. Chap

And Mofes laid, Eat that today : 
tor today is a fab bath unto the Lord: 
today ye fhall not find it in the field. 

£6 Six days ye ihall gather it ; but on. 
the feventh clay, ivbich is the fabbath, in 
it there (hall be none. 

2T And it came to pafs, that there wsnt 
out fame of the people on the feventh day 
fur to gather, and they found none. 

And the Lord laid unto Mofes, 
How long refufe ye to keep my command

29 See for that the Lord hath given 
you the fabbath, therefore he givet!. 
Oft the iixth day the bread of two d

not hear, but rebelled againft the com-

was called the land of giants. 

14 jair the fon of Martaflfeh took all

inot with your children which have not

■chaftikruent of ;he Loud your God, his 

grcarntds, his mighty hand, and his 

ijretcned out arm. 

r* And his miracles, and his acts, which 
"he did m the mldft of Egyptj unto 1'iia- 
si-aoh t;ie king of Egypt and unto all Iiis 

land : 

4 And v\hat lie did unto the army of 
Egypt- unto their horles, and to their 
chariots . how he made the water or the 
\Red lea to oversow them as thty pur- 
sued after you, and bono the Lord ii*fh 
deftroyed them unto this day ; _ 

5 And wiiat he did unto you in the wil- 
dernehs, until ye Cami into this place . 

6 And wharhedid unto Dathan and 
Abiram, the Tons of EHab, the fon of 
\Reuben : how the earth opened her 
mouth, and (wallowed them up, and 
the.r liouiehoida, and their tents, and all 
the iubJtance tha'. -zuas in their pufieilion, 
in the imdlt of ail Ifrael : 

7 But your eyes have j'een all the great 
acts of the Lord which he did. 

8 Therefore {hull ye keep all the com- 
inandments - hichlcomrhand youthisday : 
that ye may be ifrong, and go in and pof- 
ijelsihe UinJ, whither ye gotopoiiHsu ; 

9 Ami thai ye may prolong yoUr uay^ 
in the land which 'he Lokd (ware unto 
your; fathers to give unto them and to 
their feed, aland that fioweth with milk 
and hooey 

iO For the land, whither ihou goei; 
in to poifela it, ii not a.s the laud of E 
gypt, from w hence ye came out, where 
thou few edit thy leed, and wateredft // 
v. ;th thy foot as a garden of herbs : 

11 ljut the land whither )e go to pof 
Tcfs it, 1 s a land of hills and valleys, and 
drinketh water of the rain or heaven : 

\l A land winch the Lord thy God 
eareth for : the eyes of the Lord thy 
GotJ are always upon it, trom the be- 
at" the year even unto the end 
Mjf the ) ear. 

IS And it mail come to pnfs, if ye 
lhall hearken diligently unto my com- 
mandments which I command you tliio 
day, to lbve the j'.oku jour God, and 
10 fcivc hun with all your heart and 
until ^11 your foul ■ 

11 1 hat I will give you the rain of 
your lami in his due feafon, the &rft rain 
and the latter rain, Uut thou ma) eft 

ithcr in thy corn, and thy wine, and 
ihine oil. 

15 And I will fend grafs in thy field-, 
r thv cattle, that ihou maycii cat and 

I c roll. 

16 T.ikc heed to yourfclves, that your 
heart ho not deceived, and ye turn afidc, 
aijg icivt oilier gods them ; 

DEUTERONOMY. to ohdJAnct. 

17 And then the Lord's wrath be\ 
kindled again ft you, and he fluit up the 
heaven, that there be no rain, and that 
the land yield not her fruit ; and l.cjl ye 
perilh quickly from off the good land 
which the Lord giveth you. 

18 Therefore mail ye lay up thefe my 
words in your heart, and in your foul,- 
and bind them for a fign upon you-T 
hand, thai they may be as- frontlets be- 
tween your eyes. 

19 And ye lhall teach them your chil- 
dren, fpeaJking of them T»hen thou'ht- 
*e(t in thine houfe, and when thou walk- 
ed by the way, when thou licft down 
and when thou rifeft up. 

"2.0 And thou (halt write them upon 
rhe door pofts of thine houle, and upon 
thy gates : 

£l That ycur days may be multiplied, 
and the days of your children, in the 
land which the Lord fware unto your 
fathers to give them, a* the days of heav- 
en upon the earth, 

2$ For if ye (hall diligently keep all 
thefe commandments which 1 command 
you, to do them, to love the Lord your 
God, to walk in all his ways, and to 
cleave unto him ; 

*23 Then will the Lord drive out all 
thefe nations from before yon, and ye 
lhall po il>fs greater nations and mightier 
than yourfclves 

£4 Every place whereon the foles of 
your feet lhall tread, fhall be yours . from. 
■he wddernefs and Lebanon, from the 
river, the river Euphrates, even unto the 
uttermefi lea fhall your coaft be. 

2. r > There (hall no man be able to fhtnet 
before you : Jo r the Lord your God (hall 
by the fear of you, and the dread of you, 
upon all the land that ye lhall tread upon, 
as he hath laid unto you. 

26 «ff Behold, I fet before you this day 
a bleffing and a curfe ;

valour, and fent them away by night. 

4 And he commanded them, laying, 
Behold, ye fliall lie in wait againit the

far from the city , but be ye all ready : 

5 And I and" all the people that we 
"with me, will approach unto the city : 
and it fliall come to pals, when they come 
out againil us, as at the firit, that v^e will 
flee before them. 

6 (Forthey will come out after us) till 
we have drawn them from the city ; for 
they will fay, They flee before us as at the

7 Then ye ihall rife up from the ambufb,

your God will deliver it into your hand. 

tf And it llial I be, when y r e have taken

9 Jeftu.a therefore fent them forth : 
and they went to lie in ambuth, and a- 
bode between Bethel and Ai, on the welt

among the people. 

10 And 

Ai tatty and burned.

Stretch out the (pear that Is in thy hand

that be had in his hand toward the city. 

19 And the ambufh arofe quickly out 
of their place, and they ran as ioon as he 
had flretched out his hand : and they en- 
tered into the City, and took it, and hafted 
and fet the city on fire 

20 And when the men of Ai looked 
behind them, they faw, and, behold, the*

joihua had taken Ai, and had utterly 

deftroyed it ; as he had done to Jericho 

and her king ; fo he had done to Ai and 

her king ; and how the inhabitants of 

Gibeon had made peace with Ifrael, and 

JOSHUA . The fun and moon ft and ' fift 

10 And the Lord difcomfited them 
before Ifrael, and flew them with a great 
(laughter at Gibeon, and chafed them 
along the way that goeih up to Bethho 
ron, and fmoterhem to Azekah, and un% 
to Makkedah. 

11 And it came to pafs. as they fled 
from before Ifrael, ana were in the going 
down to Bethhoron, that the LoRocaft 
down great (tones from heaven upon 
them unto Azekah, and they died • they 
ivere more which died with haiUtories 
than they whom the children of Ifrael 
(lew with the fword 

12, ^ Then fpake Jofhua to the Lord, 
in the day when the Lord delivered up 
the Amorites before the children of If- 
rael, and he faid in the light of Ifrael, Sun, 
ftandthou flill upon Grbeon ; and thou, 
Moon, in the valley of Aialon. 

13 And the fun ftooti frill, and the moon 
frayed, until the people had avenged 

were among them : 

2 That they feared greatly, becaufeGib- 
eon ivas a great city, as one of the royal 
cities, and becaufe it ivas greater than Ai, 
ind all the men thereof iuere mighty. 

S Wherefore Adonizcdec king of Je- 
mlalemfentunto Hohamking of Hebron, 
and unto Piram king of Jarmuth, and un- 
to Japhia king of Lachifh,and unto Debir 
king of Eglcn, faying, 

4 Come up unto me,and help me, that 
wc may fmitc Gibeon; for it hath made 
peace with Jofluia and with the children 
ot Ifrael. 

.0 "I herefore the five kings of the Am- 
orites, the king of Jerufalem, the king of 
Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king ot 
Lathifh. the king ot Eglon, gathered 
themlel/cs together, and went up, they 
tnd all their hods, and encamped belore 
Gibeon, and made waragainlt it. 

6 ^ And the men of Gibeon fent unto 
Jo'.l'U t 10 the camp to Gilgali laying, 
Slack not thine hand from thy (ervants : 
tome up to lis quickly, and (ave us, and 

Ipus: for all the kings of the Amorites 
thai dwrll in the mountains arc gathered 
to: ;gainft us. 

7 So Joihua afcended from Gflgat, he, 
and all the people of war with him, and 
ail the mignty men of valour. 

8 And the Loud faid unto Jofluia, 
r them not: for 1 have delivered them

this written in the book of Ta&ei ? So the 
fun flood ftill in the midft of heaven, and 
haded not to go down about a whole day. 
li And there was no da* like that be- 
fore it or after it, that the Lori heark- 
ened unto the voiceofa man. fortheLoR» 
fought foi Ifrael. 

15 And Jofhua returned, and all Ifrael 
with him, unto the camp td Gilgal. 

16 But thefe five kings tied, and hid 
themfelves in a cave at Makkedah. 

IT And it was told Jofhua- faying, The 
five kings are found hid in a cave at Mak- 

18 And Jofhua faid. Roll great ftones 
upon the mouth of the cave, and fet men 
by it for to keep them : 

19 And flay ye not, Awrpurfue after 
your enemies, and fmite the hindmoft of 
them ; fuffer them not to enter into their 
cities: for the Lord your God hath de- 
livered them into your hand. 

20 And it came to pafs, when Jofhua 
and the children of Ifrael had made an 
end of Haying them with a very great 
(laughter, till they were confumed. that 
the reft ivhich remained of them entered 
into fenced citie-s. 

21 And all the people returned to the 
camp to Jofhua at Makkedah in peace : 
none moved his tongue againft any of 
the children of Ifrael

of the cave, and bring out thofe five kings

23 And they did fo, and brought forth 
thofe five kings unto him out oftjie cave, 
the king of Jerufalain, the king of He- 
bron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of 
Lachifh, and the king of Eglon. 

24 And it rame ro pafs, when they

19 And Jofhua faid unto the people, Ye 
cannot ferve the Lord : for he is an holy 
God : he is a jealous God ; he will not 
forgive your tranfgreflions nor your (ini. 

'20 If ye forlake the Lord and fertfe

you hurt, and ieonfume you, after that 
he hath done you good. 

41 And the people faid unto Jofhua, 
Nay ; but we will ferve the Lord. 

- And Jofhua laid untQ the people, 
Ye are witneues a-.ainft yourfelves that 
ye have chofen you the Lord, to ferve 
him. And they laid, We are witnefles. 
Now therefore put away, faid he,

25 So Jofhua made a covenant with 
the people that day, and let them a flat- 
ute and an ordinance-in Shechem. 

26 And Jofhua wrote thefe words iq 
the book of the law of God, and took a 
great (tone, and fe.r it up there under an

27 And Jofhua faid unto all the peo- 
ple, Behold this (lone (hall be a witnefs

of the Lord which he fpake unto us ; it 
fhall be therefore a witnefs unto >ou, left 
ye deny your God. 

28 bo Jofhua let the people depart, 
every man unto his inheritance. 

29'^j And it came to pafs after thefe 
things, that Jofhua the (on of Nun, the

dred and ten years old. 

50 And they buried him in the border 
of his inheritance in Lim.nathferah, which 
is in mount Ephraim, on the north iide

Si And Ifrael ferved the Lord all the 
days of Jofhua, and all the days of the 
elders that overlived Jothua, and which 
had known all the works of the Lord, 
that he had done for Ifrael. 

51 And the bones of fofepta which the 
■child renof Ifrael brought upoutoi Egypt, 
buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of 
ground which Jacob bought of the fons 
of Mamor. the father of Shechem, for an 
hundred pieces of (ilver : and it became 
the inheritance of the children of Jofeph.

28 Kowbeit the king of the children of 
Ammon hearkened not unto the words

upon Jephthah, and he palTed over Gil-

Mizpeh of Gilead, and from Mizpeh of 
Gilead he palTed over unto the children

24 fj And the woman bare a Ton, and 
called his name Samfon : and the child 
grew, and the Lord blefled him;

to move him at times in the camp of Dan,

AND Samfon went down to Timnath* 
and faw a woman in Timnath of the 
daughters of the Phililtines. 

% $ And he came up, and told his fath- 
er and his mother, and faid, I have feen a 
woman in 1 imnath of the daughters of 
the Philiftines : now therefore get her for 
me to wife. 

3- Then his father and his mother feid 
unto him, Is- there never a woman among 
the daughters of thy brethren, or among 
all my people, that thou goeft to tak<: a 
jwife oi the uncircumcifed Philiftines i 
And Samfon laid unto his father, Get 
her for me ; for fhe pleafeth me well. 

4 But his father and his mother knew 
not that it nvas of the Lo*d, that he 
fought an occafionagainft the Phililtines : 
for at that time the Phihitines had do- 
minion over lirael. 

5 Then went Samfon do T vn, and his 
father and his mother, to Timnath, and 
came to the vineyards of Timnath : andj 
behold a young lion roared againit him. 

6 And the fpirit of the Lokd came 
mightily upon him, and he rent him as 
he would have rent a kid, attd be had 
nothing in his hand : But he told not his 
lather or his mother what he had done. 

I And he went down, and talked with 
the woman ; and fhe p leafed Samfon well. 

3 And after a time he returned to take 
her, and he turned afide to fee the carcafs 
of the lion : and, behold, there nvas a 
fwarm of bees and honey in the carcafs- 
of the lion. 

9 And he took thereof in his hands, 
and went on eating, and came to his fa- 
ther and mother, and he gave them, and 
they did tat : but lie told not them that 
he tiad taken the honey out of the car- 
cafs of the lion. 

10 ^] So his father went down unto the 
woman : and Samfon made there a feaft : 
ioi fo ufed the young men to do. 

II And it came to pafs, when they faw 
him, that they brought thirty compan- 
ions to be with him.

know whether our way which we go lliall 
be profperous. 

6 And the prieft faid unto them, Go 
before the Lord it your way 

wlierein ye go. 

7 Then trre rive men departed, and came 
to Lak'h, and faw the people that nvere 
therein, how they dwelt carelefs, after the 
*nanner of the Zidoruans, quiet and fe-, 
cure ; and there mas no magiftrate in the 
land, that might put them to ftiame in any 
thing j and they ivere far from the Zido- 
nians, and had no buiinefs with any man. 

8 And tltey came urtfo their brethren 
t'o Zorah and to Kihtaol : and their breth- 
ren faid unto them, Whatyiary ye ? 

9 And they (aid, Arife, that we may 
go up again It them r for we have feen

and, Are ye ftill ? Be not flothful to go,

God hath given it into your hands ; a 
.place wher* there is no want of any thing 
that is in tiie earth. 

11 And there went from thence of the 
family of the Danites, out of Zorah and 
out of Hfhtapl, fix hundred men appoint- 
ed with weapons of war. 

1- And they went up, and pitched in 
Kirjathjearim, in Judah : wherefore 
they called that place Mahanehdan un- 
to this day : behold, it is behind Kir- 

IS And they patted thence unto mount

Micah rubbed „. 

18 And thefc went into Micah's hem/e, 
and fetched the carved image, the ephod, 
and the teraphim. and the molten image. 
Then faid the prieft unto them, What 
do ye ? 

10 And they faid unto him, Hold thy 
peace, lay thine hand upon thy mouth, 
and go with us, and be to us a father 
and a prieft Is it better for thee to be a 
prieft unto the houfe of one man, or that 
thou be a prieft unto a tribe and a family 
in Ifrael ? 

2i0 And the prieft's heart was glad, anH 
he took the ephod, and the teraphim, 
and the graven image, and went ifl the 
mid ft of the people. 

21 So they turned and departed, anft 
put the little ones and the cattle and the 
carriage before them. 

22 And when they were a good way 
from the houfe ot Micah. the men that 
e were in the houfes near to Micah's hoofe 
were gathered together, and overtook, the 
children of Dan. 

23 And they cried unto the children of 
Dan. And they turtfed their faces, and 
faid unto Micah, What at let h thee, thai 
thou comeft with fuch a Company ? 

21 And he faid, Ye have taken away 
my gods which I made, and the prieft, 
and ye are gone away : and, What have 
I more ? and, What is this that ye fay 
unto me, What aileth thee ? 

25 And the children of Dan faid unto 
him, Let not thy voice be heard among 
us, left angry fellows run upon thee, 
and thou lofe thy life, with the lives of 
thy houfehold. 

26 And the children of Dan went their 
way } and when Micah faw that they 
■rvere too ftrong for him, he turned and 
went back unto his houfe. 

27 ^] And they took the things which 
Micah had made, and the prieft which 
he had, and came unto Laith, unto a 
people that ivere at quiet and fecure ; 
and they fmote them wth the edge of the 
[word, and burned the city with fire. 

28 And there -"was no deliverer, becaule 
it Tvasiar from Zidon, and they had no 
bufinefc whhany man ; and it was in the 
valley that tietb by Uethrebob. And 
they built a city, and dwelt therein. 

29 And they called the name of the 
city Dan, after the name of Dan their 
father, who was born unto Ifrael ; how- 
beir, the name of the city ivas Laifh at 
i he firft. 

SO And the children of Dan fet up the 
graven image : And Jonathan, the lonof

his fons were pricfta to the tribe of Dan 
until the day Off the captivity of the land.

There is one tribe cut off from Ifrael thit 

7 Mow il all we do for wives for them 
that remain, feeing we have fworn by the

fouth of Lebonah. 

-0 Therefore they commanded the chil- 
dren of Benjamin, faying, Go and lie in. 
wait in the vineyards ; 

21 And fee, and behold, if the daugh- 
ters of Shiloh come out to dance in 
dances, then come ye out of the vine- 
yards, and catch you every man his wife 
of the daughters of Shiloh, and go to the 
land of Benjamin. 

22 And it lhall be, when their fathers or 
their brethren come unto us to complain, 
that we will fey unto them Be favourable 
unto them for our fakes; becaufe v\e re- 
ferved not to each man his wife in the 
war : for ye did not give unto them at 
this time, that ye fhould be guilty. 

23 And the children of Benjamin did fo, 
and took the :n wives, according to their 
nnmber,of them that danced, whom they 
caught, and they went and returned un-

Then faid Elkanah her huiband to

Why eared thou not ? and, Why is thy

Now Eli the pried fat upon a feat by a

15 And Hannah anfwered and faid, No, 
my lord, I am a woman of a forrowful 
foirit : II have drunk neither wine nor 
ftroug drink, but have poured out my 
foul before the Lord. 

16 Count not thine handmaid for a

H i i n Eli anfwered and faid. Go in

bring him, that he may appear before the 
Lord, and there abide for ever. 

25 And Elkanah her huiband faid unto

S And ere the lamp of God went out 

The Ifraclitesave 6<uef£6fHe, 

18 And Samuel told him every whit> 
and hid nothing from him. And he faid, 
It is the Lord • let him do what feemeth 
him good 

19 And Samuel grew, and the Lord 

in the temple of rhe Lord, where the ark i was with him, and did let none of his 

of God ivas, and Samuel was laid down 
toJle t p ; 

4 'I hat the Lord called Symuel : and 
he anfwered, Here am T. 

5 And he ran unto Eli. and faid, Here 
am I : for thou calledft me Ana he faid, 
I called not ; lie down again. And he 
went and lay down. 

6 And the Lord called yet again, Sam- 
uel And Samuel arofe and went to Eli, 
and faid, Here am I ; for thou didft call 
me. And lie anfwered, I called not, my 
fon lie down again. 

7 Now Samuel did not yet know the 
Lord : neither was the word of the Lord 
yet revealed unro him. 

G And the Lord called Samuel again 
the third time. And he arofe and went 
to fcli,and faid, Here am I ; for thou didft 
call me. And Eli perceived that the Lord 
had called the child. 

9 Therefore Eli faid unto Samuel Go, 
lie down : and ir fhall be* if he call thee, 
that thou (h It (ay, ^peak, Lord ; for thy

down in his place 

10 And the Lord came and flood, and 
called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. 
Then Samuel anfwered, Speak ; for thy 
fervant heareth. 

11 V And the Lord faid to Samuel. Be- 
hold, I will do a thing in Ifiael, at which 
both the ears of every one that heareth it 
(hall tingle. 

1- In that day I will perform againft 
Eli all things which I have fpoken con-

13 For I have told him that I will

and all the men of Jabefh faid unto Na- 
haih, Make a covenant with us, and we 
v/ill ferve thee. 

2 And Nahalh the Ammonite anfwered 
them, On this condition will I make a 
covenant with you, that I may thrultout 
all your right eyes, and lay it for a re- 
proach upon all Ifrael. 

3 And the ciders of Jabefh faid unto 
him, Give us feven days refpite that we 
may fend melfengers unto all the coafts 
of Ifrael : and then, \i' there be no man to 
lave us, we will come out to thee. 

4 fl Then canre the melfengers toGib- 
eah of Saul, and told the tidings in the 
cars of the people : and all the people 
lilted up their voices, and wept. 

5 And, behold, Saul came after the 
herd out ol the field ; and Saul faid, 
What adctb the people that they weep I 
And they told him the tidingsof the men 
of Jab«ih. 

6 And the fpirit of God came upon 
Saul when he heard thole tidings,and hio 
anger was kindled greatly. 

1 And he took a yoke of oxen, and 
hewed them in pieces, and fent tbt in 
throughout aM the coalts of Ifrael by the

Cometh not forth after Saul and after

10 Therefore the men of Jabefh laid, 
Tomorrow we will come out unto you, 
and ye (hall do with us all that feemeth 
good unto you. 

It And it w,is/oon the morrow, that 
Saul put the people in three companies : 
and they came into the midft of the hoft 
in tj-ie morning watch, and (lew the Am-

2 And now, behold, the king walkefh

1 i And Samuel faid tb Saul, Thou 
liaft done foohftl jr • ihoii hall not kept 
the commandment of the Lord thy God, 
vhich he commanded thee : for now 
would the Lord have eftablifiied thy 
kingdom upon Ifrael fcr ever. 

t4 But now thy kingdom fhall not 
Continue : the Lord bath fought bun 
a maw after his own heart, and the 
Lord hath commanded him to be cap- 
tain over his people, becaufe thou haft 
not kept that winch the Lcrd command-

15 And Samuel arcfe, and gat him up 
from Gilgal unto Gibeah of Benjamin. 
And Saul numbered the people that 
ivere prefent with hint, about fix hun 
cxed men* ,. 

16 And Saul, and Jonathan his fon, 
and the people that there prefent with 
them, abode in Gibeah of Benjamin : but 
the Philiftines encamped in MLchmalh. 

17 And the (pollers came out of the 
camp of the Ph ill (lines in three compa- 
nies : one company turned unto the way 
that leaActb to Onhrah, unto the land of 
ShuaJ : 

18 And another company turned the 
way to Bethhoron : and another com- 
pany turned to the wiy of the border 
that looketh to the valley of Zeboim to- 
ward the wiidernefs. 

19 Now there was no fmith found 
throughout all the land ot Ifrael ■ for the 
Philiftines faid, Left the Hebrews make 
them (words or (pears : 

B it alWhe Ifraelites went down to 
the Ph'liftines, to fharpen every man his 
fharc, and his coulter, and his ax and his 
m tttock. 

-1 V( t they hid a file f>r the mattocks, 
and for the coulters, and for the forks, 
and.forthear.ts.and to fharpen the poads. 

So it came to pafs m the day of 
battle, that there was neither fword r.rr

bed's brother, the ion of Phinehas, the 
fon of Eli, the Lord's prieft in Shiioh, 
wearing an ephod. And the people knew* 
not that Jonathan was gone. 

4 And between the pallages, by which 
Jonathan fought to go over unto the 
Philiftines' ganifon, there was a fharp 
rock on the one iide, and a fhatp rock on 
the other lide : and the name of the one

5 The forefront of th.e one nvas fituate

6 And Jonathan faid to the young mart 
that bare his armour, Come, and let its 
go over unto the garrifon of thefe uncir- 
cumcifed : if may be that the Lord wil! 
work for us : for there ts no reftraint to 
the Lord to fave by many of by few. 

7 And his armourbearer (aid unto 
him, Do all that is in thine heart : turn 
thee : behold, I am with thee according 
to thy heart. 

» Then faid Jonathan, Beholct, we will 
pafs over unto thefe men, and we will dif. 
cover curfelves unto them. 

9 If they fay thus unto us, Tarry until 
we come to you ; then we will ftand frill in 
our place, and will not go up unto them. 

10 But if they fay thus, Come up unto 
us ; then we will go up : for the Lord 
hath delivered them into our hand : and

J i And both ofthemdifcovered them-

jand the Philiftines faid, Behold, the He-

£54 Jonathan lo<veth David : 

the Philiftine, and flew him; but there 
ivas no ("word in the hand of David. 

51 Therefore David ran, and itood up- 
on the Philiftine, and took his fword. and 
drew it out of the (heath thereof, and Hew 
him, and cut off his head therewith. 
And when the Philiftines faw their cham- 
pion was dead, they fled. 

52 And the men of Ifrael and of Ju- 
dah arofe, and fhonted, and purfued the 
Philiftines. until thou come to the valley 
and to the gates of Ekron. And the 
wounded of the Philiftine s fell down by 
the way to Shaaraiuueven unto Gath,and 
unto iikron. 

55 And the children of Ifrael returned 
from chaling after the Philiftines,and they 
fpoiled their tents. 

5i And David took the head of the 
Philiftine, and brought it to Jerufalem ; 
but he put his armour in his tent. 

j5 And when Saul faw David go forth 
againft the Philiftine, he faid unto Abner, 
the captain of the holt, Abner, Whofe fon 
is this youth > and Abner faid, As thy 
ioul liveth, O king, I cannot tell. 

56 And the king faid, Inquire thou 
whofe fon the tripling is. 

57 And as David ieturned from the 
daughter of the Philiftine, Abner took 
him, and brought him before Saul, with 
the head of the Philiftine in his hand. 

58 And Saul faid to him, Whofe fon 
art thou, thou young man ? And David 
anfwered, / am the fon of thy fervant 
Jefle the Bethlehemite.

AND it came to pais, when he had 
made an end of fpeaking unto Saul, that 
the foul of Jonathan was knit with the 
foul of David, and Jonathan loved him 
as his own foul. 

2 And Saul took him that day, and 
would let him go no more home to his 
father's houfc. 

6 Then Jonathan and David made a 
covenant, becauie he foved him as his 
own loul. 

4 And Jonathan ftripped himfelfofthe 
robe that was upon him, and gave it to 
David, and his garments, even to his 
f.vord, and to his bow, and to his girdle. 

5 fl And David went out whitherfo- 
ever Saul fent him, a/id behaved lumfelf 
v. ifcly : and Saul fet him over the men of 
war, and he was accepted in the light of 
all the people, and alio in the light of 
Saul's fervants. 


Saul fee keth to kill bim. 

ing, to meet king Saul, with tabrets,witk 
joy, and with inltruments ot muiic. 

7 And the women anfwered one anoth- 
er as they played, and faid, Saul hath 
llam his thoufands, and David his ten 

8 And Saul was very wroth, and the 
faying diipleaiet'. him ; and he faid, They 
have alcnbed unto David ten thoufands, 
and to me they have afcribed but thou- 
fandb : and, i* hat can he have more but 
tiie kingdom ? 

9 And baul eyed David from that day 
and forward. 

10 «[[ And it came to pafs on the mor- 
row, that the evil jpirit from God came 
upon Saul, and he propheiied in themidfl 
of the houfe : and David played with his 
hand, as at other times : and there uua* 
a javelin m Saul's hand. 

11 And Saul cait the javelin, for he 
faid, I will fm'fte David even to the wall 
ivitb it. And Davi4 avoided cm of his 
prefence twice. 

12 ff And Saul was afraid of David, 
becaufe the Lord was with him, and was 
departed from Saul. 

13 i here fore Saul removed him from 
him, and made him his captain over a 
thoufand ; and he went out and came ia 
before the people. 

14 And David behaved himfelf wifely 
in all his ways ; and the Lord ivas with 

15 Wherefore when Saul faw that he 
behaved himfelf very wifely, he was afraid 
of him. 

16 But all Ifrael and Judah loved Da- 
vid, becaufe he went out and came in be- 
fore them. 

17 fl And Saul faid to David, Behold 
my elder daughter Merab,her will 1 give 
thee to wife . only be thou valiant for me, 
and right the Lord's battles. For baul 
faid, Let not mine hand be upon him, but 
let the hand of the Philiftines be upon 

18 And David faid unto Saul, Who a m 
I ? and, What ii my life, or my father's 
family in Ifrael, that I inould be fon in

19 But it came to pafs at the time when 
Merab Saul's daughter Ihould have been

Adriel the Meholathite to wite. 

20 And Michal Saul's daughter loved 
David : and they told Saul, and the thing 
pie ded him.

And Saul's fervants fpake thofe

Lid, Seemeth it to you a light thing to he

And when his fervants told David

6 And he came fo the fheepcotes by the

jn to cover his feet : and David and his 
men remained in the fides of the cave. 

4 And the men of David laid unto him, 
Behold the day of which the Lord laid 
unto thee, Behold, I will deliver thine 
enemy into thine hand, that thou may ell 
do to him as it (ball leem good unto thee. 
Then David arole, and cut ort the fkirt of

laying, My lord the king. And when 
Saul looked behind hi:w, David Hooded

9 And David faid to Saul, Wherefore 
hearefj thou men's. words, laying, Behold, 
pavid feeketh thy hurt ? 

10 Behold.this day thineeyes have feen 
how that the Lord had delivered thee to

Jome bade me kill thee : but mine eye fpar-

hers that went after her ; and (he went 
after the meirengeis of David, and be- 
came his wife. 

43 David alfo took Ahinoamof Jezreel ; 
and they were alfo both of them his wives. 

44 But Saul had given Michal his 
daughter, David'swife, to Pha'.ti thefon 
of Laifh, which iuas of Gallim.

AND the Ziphites came unto Saul to 
Gibeah, faying, Doth not David hide

2 1 hen Saul arofe, and went down to 
the wildcrnefsof Ziph, having three thou- 
fai-d cholen men of Ilracl with him, to 
leek David in the wildernefs of Ziph. 

3" And Saul pitched in the hill of Ha.

Hefpafeth Saui. 

way But David abode in the wildernefs, 
and he faw that Saul came after him into 
the wildernefs. 

4 David therefore fent out fpies and tin - 
derftood that Saul was come in very deed. 

5 %\ And David arofe. and came to the 
place where Saul had pitched : and David 
beheld the place where Saul lay, and 
Abner the fon of Ner, the captain of his 
hoft : and Saul lay in the trench, and 
the people pitched round about him. 

6 Then anfwered David, and faid to 
Ahimelech the Hittite,and to Abifhaithe 
fon of Zeruiah. brother to Joab, faying, 
Who will go down with me to Saul to 
the camp ? and Abirtxai faid, I will go 
down with thee- 

7 So David and Abifhai rame to the 
people by night > and, behold, Saul lay 
fleeping within, the trench, and his fpear 
Muck in the ground at his bolfter : but 
Abner and the people lay round abouthim. 

8 Then faid Abilhai to David, God 
hath delivered thine enemy into thine 
hand this day : now, therefore, let me 
fniite him, 1 pray thee, with the fpear 
even to the earth at once, and I will not 
fmite him the fecond time. 

9 And David faid to Abilhai, Deftroy 
him not : for, "Who can flretch forth his 
hand againfl the Lord's anointed, and 
be guiltlefs > 

10 David faid furthermore, As the 
Lord liveth the Lord (hall fmite him ; 
or his day (hall come to die ; or he (hall 
defcend into battle, and perifh. 

11 The Lord forbid that I fhould 
flretch forth mine hand againfl the 
Lord's anointed : but, I pray thee, take 
thou now the fpear that is at his bolder^ 
and the cruife of water, and let us go. 

12 So David took the fpear and the 
cruife of water from Saul's bolfter ; and 
they gat *hem away, and no man faw it, 
nor knew it, neither awaked : for they 
rvere all afleep ; becaufe a deep fleep 
from the Lord was fallen upon them. 

13 Then David went over to the other 
fide, and flood on the top of an hill afar 
oft ; a great fuace being between them. 

14 And David cried to the people, and 
to Abner the fon of Ner, faying, An- 
fwered thou not, Abner ? Then Abner 
anfwered and faid, Who art tliou that 
crieft to the king > 

15 And David faid to Abner, Art not' 
thou a 'valiant man \ and, Who is like to 
thee in Hrael ? Wherefore then haft thou 

(not kept thy lord the king ? for there 
came one of the people in to deftroy the 
iking thy lord. 

16 1 his thing is not good that thou 
had done, ,/tf.s the Lord liveth, ye are 
worthy to die, becaufe ye have not kept, 
your m after the Lord's anointed And 

! now fee where the kind's fpear is, and 


What have I done ? or, What evil is in 
mine hand ? 

19 Now, therefore, 1 pray thee, let my 
lord th'.- king hear the words of his ler- 
vant. If the Lord have ftirred thee up 
againft me, let him accept an offerin 
but if they be the children of men, curled 
be they before the Lord ; for they have 
driven me out this day from abiding in 
the inheritance of the Lord, faying, Go, 
ferve other gods. 

.0 Now, therefore, let not my blood 
fall to the earth the face of the 

Lord; for the king of Ifrael is come out 
to feek a flea, a* when one doth hunt a 
partridge in the mountains. 

41 (ajd Saul, I have finned ; re- 

turn, mj ion D.ivid : for 1 will no more 
do thee harm, becaufe my foul was pre- 
cious in thine eyes this day : behold, I 
have played the tool, and have erred ex-

And David anfwered and faid, Be- 
hold the kind's fpear ! and let one of the

The Lokd render to every man

2- Then anfwered all the wicked men, 
and men of Belial, ofthofe that went with

with us, we will not give them aught of the 
fpoil that we have recovered, favc to eve-

23 Then faid David, Ye (Hall not do fo,

hath given us, who hath preferved us, 
and delivered the company that came a- 
gainft us into our hand. 

2-4 For, Who will hearken unto you in 
this matter ? But as his part is that goeth 
down to the battle, iojbzll his part be that 
tarrieth by the (tuff; they thallpart alike. 

25 And itwas/b from that day forward, 
that he made it a ftatute and an Ordinance 
for Ifrael unto this day, 

26 And when David came to Ziklag, 
he fent of the fpoil unto the elders of Ju- 
dah, even to his friends, faying, Behold a 
prefent for you of the fpoil of the enemies 
of the Lord ; 

27 To them which vuere in Bethel, and

himfelf and his men were wont to haunt. 


1 Saul having lojl his army and bisfons, 

killeth himfelf. 

NOW the Philiftines fought againft If- 
rael ; and the men of Ifrael fled from 
before the Phililtincs,and fell down flain 
jfn mount Gilboa. 

2 And the Philiftines followed hard up- 
on Saul and upon his fons ; and the Phi- 
liftines Hew Jonathan, and Abinadab, and 
Melchiihua, Saul's fons. 

3 And the battle went fore againft 
Saul, and the archers hit him ; and he 
was fore wounded of the archers. 

4 Then faid Saul unto his armourbear- 
er,Drawthy fword,and thrurt me through 
therewith ; left thefcunorcumcifed come 
and thruft me through, and abufe me. 
But his armourbearer v.tmld not ; for he 
was fore afraid. Therefore Saul took a 
fvvord, and fell upon it. 

^ 5 And when his armourbearer faw that 
Saul was dead, he fell like wife upon his 

-fword, and died with him. 

) 6 So Saul died, and his three fons, and 

= his armourbearer, and all his men, that 

j/ame day together. 

7- And when the men of Ifrael thatti^^ 
on the other fide of the valley, and they 
that were on the other fide Jordan, faw 
that the men of Ifrael fled, and that Saul 
and his fons were dead, they forfook the 
cities, and fled ; and the Philiftines came 
and dwelt in them. 

8 And it came to pafs on the monow, 
when the Philiftines came to ftrip the 
flain, that they found Saul and his three* 
fons fallen in mount Gilboa. 

9 And they cut of his head, and ftrip- 
ped off his armour, and fent into the land 
of the Philiftines roundabout, to publifh 
it in the houfe of their idols, and among 
the people. 

10 And they put his armour in the 
houfe of Afhtaroth : and they f aliened 
his body to the wall of Bethfhan. 

11 fl And when the inhabitants of Ja~ 
beftigilead heard of that which the Phi- 
liftines had done to Saul ; 

12 Ail the valiant men arofe, and went 
all night, and took the body of Saul and. 
the bodies of his fons from the wall of 
Bethfhan, and came-to Jabefh, and burn: 
them there. 

13 And they took their bones, and bu- 
ried them under a tree at Jabefh, and faft- 
cd feven days.

houfe of Judah followed David. 

U And the time that David was king 
in Hebron over the houie of Judah, was 
feven years and fix months. 

12 And Abner the fon of Ner, and the 
fervants of Ifhbofheth the Ion cf Saul, 
went out from Mahanaim to Gibeon. 

13 And Joab the fon of Zeruiah, and 
the fervants of David, went out, and 
met together by the pool of Gibeon : and 
they fat down, the one on the one fide of 
the pool, and the other an the other iide 
of the pool. 

\K And Abner faid to Joab, Let the 
young men now arife,and play beforeus. 
And joab laid, Let them arile. 

15 Then here arofe,and went over by 
number twelve of Benjamin, which per- 
tained to Ifhbofheth the fon of Saul, and 
twelve of the fervants cf David. 

16 And they caught every one his fel- 
low by the head, and tbrujl his fword in 
his fellow's Iide ; fp they fell down togeth- 
er : wherefore that place was called 
Helkatnhazzurim, which is in Gibeon. 

IT And there was a very fore battle 
that day ; and Abner was beaten, and

19 And Afahel purfued after Abner ; 
and ii) going he turned not to the right 
hand nor to the left from following Abner. 

20 Then Abner looked behind him- 
and laid, Art thou Afahel ? And he an- 
swered, I am. 

21 And Ad per taid to him, Turn thee 
afide to thy right hand or to thy left, 
and lay thee hold on one of the young

Afahel wpijld not turnafule from follow-

26 Then Abner called to Joab, and faid, 
Shall the fword devour forever \ Know eft 
thou not that it will be bitternefs in the 
latter end ? How long fhali it be then, ere 
thou bid the people return from follow- 
ing their brethren ? 

27 And Joab faid, As God liyeth, un T 
lefs thou hadft fpoken 4 furely then in the 
morning the people had gone up every 
one from following his brother. 

23 So Joab blew a trumpet, and all the, 
people flood ft;ll,and purfued after Ifrael 
no more, neither fought they any more. 

29 And Abner and his men walked all 
that night through the plain, and pafTe& 
over Jordan, and went through all Bith- 
ron, and they came to Mahanaim.

25 And the children of Benjamin gath-

fervants of David had fmittep

three hundred and threetcore men died. 
St And they took up Afahel, and bu-

NOW there was a long war between 
the houfe of Saul and the houfe of Da- 
vid : but David waxed dronger and 
(tronger, and the houie of Saul waxed 
weaker and weaker. 

2 And unto David were fans born in 
Hebron: and his firft born was Amnon,

AND when Saul's fon heard that Abner 
whs dead in Hebron, his hands were fee- 
ble, and all the Ifraelites were troubled. 

2 fl And Saul's fon had two men that 
were captains of bands ; the name of the 
one Tvas Baanah, and the name of the 
other Rechab, the fonsof Rimmon a Beer- 
othite, of the children of Benjamin : (for 
Beeroth alfo was reckoned to Benjamin : 

3 And the Beerothites fled to Gittaim, 
and werefojourners there until this day.) 

4 And Jonathan, Saul's fon, had a fon 
that in as iame of his feet. He was five 
year's old when the tidings came of Saul 
and Jonathan out of Jezreel, and his 
jiurfe took him up, and fled : and it came 
to oafs, as fhe made hade to flee, that he 
fell, and became lame. And his name 
ivas Mephibofheth. 

5 And the fons of Rimmon the Becr- 
othite, Rechab and Baanah, went, and 
came about the heat of the day to the 
houfe of lfhboiheth, who lay on a bed at 

6 And they came thither into the mid ft 
of the houfe, as though they would have 
fetched wheat : and they fmote him un- 
der the fifth rib : and Rechab and Ba.a- ( 
nah his brother efcaped. 

7 For when they came into the houfe, 
belay on his bed in his bedchamber, and 
they fmote him, and flew him, and be- 
headed him, and took his head, and gat 
them away through the plain all night. 

G And they brought the head of Ifli- 
bofheth unto David to Hebron, and faid 
to the king, Behold the head of Ifhbo- 
theih the fon of Saul thine enemy, which 
fought thy life : and the Lord hath 
•nged my lord the king this day of

9 ^| And David anfwercd Rechab and 
Baanah his brother, the fons of Rimmon

the Lord livcth. w ho luth redeemed my 
foul out of all advcrlity, 

10 When one told me, faying, Behold,

tidings : 

11 How much more wicked i 
have flain a righteous pcih n in his own

take you away from the earth ? 

it And David commanded his young 
men, and they flew them, and cut off their 
hands and their feet, and hanged them 
up over the pool in Hebron. But they 
took the head of Ifhbofheth, and buried 
it in the fepnlchre of Abner in Hebron. 

1 The tribes come to Hebron to anoint Da- 
vid over Ifrael. 6 He taketh lion 
from the Jebujttes. 

a HEN came all the tribes of Ifrael to 
David unto Hebron, afid fpake, faying, 
Behold, we are thy bone and thy flefh. 

2 Alfo in time pa(t, when Saul was 
king over us, thou waft he that leddeft 
out and broughteft: in Ifrael : and the 
Loud faid to thee, Thou iTialt feed my 
people Ifrael, and thou (halt be a captain 
over Ifrael. 

3 So all the elders of Ifrael came to 
the king to Hebron ; and king David 
made a league with them in Hebron be- 
fore the Lord : and they anointed David 
king over Ifrael. 

4 David mas thirty years old when he 
began to reign, and he reigned fo*ty 

^ Ih Hebron he reigned over Judah 
ieven years and fix months : and in Je- 
rufaiem he reigned thirty and three years 
overall Itrael and Judah. 

6 <[J And the king and his men went 
to Jerusalem unto the Jebufites, the in- 
habitants of the land : which fpake unto 
David, faying. Kxccpt thou take away the 
blind and the iame, thou fhalt not come 
in hither : thinking, David cannot come 
in hither. 

7 Neverthelefs, David took the ftrong

foever getteth up to the gutter, and fmi- 
teth the Jebufites, and the lame, and the 
blind, that are hated of David's foul, be 
flail be chief and captain. Wherefore 
they faid, '1 he blind and the lame fhali 
not come into the houfe. 

o David dwelt in tl>e fort, and called 
it the city of David. And David built 
round about from Millo and inward. 

10 And David went on, and grew 
great, and the Lord God of hofls vca,s

11 And Hiram king of Tyre fent mef- 
fengcrs to David, and cedar trees, and 
carpenters, andinafons: and they built 
David an houfe.
